Senior Services will hold its 21st annual Evening for Alzheimer’s Care gala on Friday, Nov. 5. The celebratory event, typically held in person, will instead primarily be found online this year out of an abundance of caution and to reduce health risks related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 
The  Evening for Alzheimer’s Care consists of an online auction, an in-person open house auction item preview for fully vaccinated and masked guests, and a special online video program. 
*The online auction will begin Friday, Oct. 29, at 5 p.m. and will conclude at 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 5. The sweeping selection of exciting auction items includes daring adventure packages, relaxing vacation getaways, stunning local artwork, exquisite food experiences, and much more. Senior Services’ Facebook (@SeniorServicesInc) and Instagram (@srservicesinc) pages feature sneak previews of some of the available items.
*The in-person open house preview, which provides guests an opportunity to view auction items in person, will take place Friday, Nov. 5, from 3-6 p.m. at Senior Services, 2895 Shorefair Drive, Winston-Salem. 
*The video program will go live on the official event website on Friday, Nov. 5, at 8 p.m. The event website will be accessible for browsing and bidding starting Oct. 29. Visit seniorservicesinc.org and click the Evening for Alzheimer’s Care link found on the homepage.
The Evening for Alzheimer’s Care raises funds to support scholarships for Forsyth County seniors who are living with dementia or other forms of memory loss to attend the award-winning Elizabeth and Tab Williams Adult Day Center. The Williams Adult Day Center provides participants a safe and comfortable place, cutting edge programming, and social engagement during the day, while ensuring their caregivers the opportunity to work, attend to personal business, and receive necessary respite. 
In addition to serving nutritious meals and offering a daily lineup of fun and stimulating activities for participants, the Williams Center offers the chance for participants to receive dentistry and podiatry care, spa-like bathing, and an on-site hair salon. The Williams Center also offers caregiver support groups to help families navigate the dementia journey. 
Says a family caregiver about the Williams Center, “I don’t know how I could survive without the center.” And another remarked, “I have less stress about Dad’s care while I work. He seems more awake and alert after a day at the Williams Center. When he was at home, he just slept all day.”
The 21st Annual Evening for Alzheimer’s Care will offer something for everyone. People seeking to find other ways to support the Williams Adult Day Center can join the Alzheimer’s Care 2021 Challenge, an online fundraising campaign using social media and your personal and professional social networks.
